I was working on this site and had a client who assigned me two projects. I accepted both offers, which required a payment of $65 to proceed ($25 for project 1 and $30 for project 2). This was acceptable to me initially, but it became problematic when my client stated that project 1 was mistakenly created. The client cancelled it, however, the fee I paid was not refunded to my balance. I contacted support and was informed that my client needed to delete the project. I relayed this to my client, but my funds were still not returned. Upon contacting support again, my balance was refunded, albeit with the explanation that it was done as a courtesy. Moreover, the chat was abruptly closed by the support agent, which was rather unprofessional. I simply want my money back; there's no reason to pay for a cancelled project. This incident left me feeling quite offended. I would caution others to use or work on this site only if they are prepared to encounter fraudulent practices. It's also widely known that when participating in contests on this site, unscrupulous freelancers may plagiarize your work, and the site takes no action against such plagiarism. Be forewarned! That's all.
Thieves Everywhere Specially in Freelancer.com
I am a professional designer and have been servicing the people in Freelancer.com for 3 years. Till meet up with other paltforms I noticed some issues about this platform. Firstly they shelter fake clients and designers within. Never seen protecting real person's rights. Also low quality entries, jobs or employers into the bargain. Because word of justice is just word there. Everoyen uses stock and stolen assets but never apply sanctions. Any punishments over there, shame.
Therefore professional designers get away from this platform. Because they don't respect us.
Freelancer.com stole my money.
I signed up to freelacer.com this July as a buyer to find talented creators who can create content for my business. At first, everything was fine. I found a skilled freelancer who successfully completed 5 small projects for me, and I successfully paid for these projects through the freelancer.com payment system. I was completely satisfied with his work and all the payment processes on freelancer.com and decided to hire this freelancer for a larger project.
It took us a month to complete this project, and the freelancer had to reject all other orders and projects from other companies. A month later, when I was trying to pay my freelancer $1,400 for a project, something unbelievable happened. Freelancer.com took my money from my PayPal account and froze it on the platform. They started telling me that my account was suspicious and I needed to go through an identity verification procedure. When I asked why everything was fine before and all payments were successful, but now my account suddenly became suspicious, they didn’t really answer me.
I resigned myself and began to go through the verification procedure. I had to go through this process several times, but every time something was wrong, and they were always unhappy with something. First, they told me that my IP address did not match my place of registration, and they were forced to reject my request, which is outrageously ridiculous. I can be registered in one city and go to another city within my country on a business trip or vacation, this is not prohibited by law, and they do not have the right to refuse my request for such a reason.
Now they simply reject my verification requests without giving a reason. I have already uploaded all my personal documents several times which are real and genuine, taken photos of my face next to my passport, and provided documents that show the legitimacy of my business. But for them, something keeps going wrong. When I ask the support team to explain the situation and name the reason, they constantly evade and do not say what is wrong. The support is not helpful at all and behaves like a robot, responding with template canned answers.
As a result, it turns out that they withdrew a considerable amount of money from my account and do not give it to the freelancer because they do not want to accept my verification requests. They don't return the money and keep it for themselves, which is like a regular robbery if you ask me. My freelancer worked hard this whole month and didn't get paid as a result, and I lost my money as a result.
So I don't recommend the freelancer.com platform, use UpWork or Fiverr instead.
It’s the worst freelancing site in the world
Freelancer.com is basically a platform creates by kids. That's how I see it as a freelancer. 99% of the jobs posted are scams and it costs so much money for their useless membership fee. Stay away from this scam site otherwise you'll waste your time and money.
POOR MANAGEMENT AND CUSTOMER SUPPORT
Worst ever experience. They are thief and completely Froud. They stole my $300 and closed my account for no reason. Please don't waste your precious time using this fake app. When you try to contact support then sent auto generated replies. Not even a single person there to reply. They stole my money and wasted my time. I requested many times that please transfer my funds in my account to my bank account that is my hard earned money. I earned that spending day and night. But no response from them about returning the money every time they say your violated our terms but never tells which one and never talk about sending my money to my bank account. THAT'S MY MONEY. YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO KEEP IT.
The worst experience I’ve ever had no customer service
The take your money they allow you to use a service the they won’t allow you to use your funds to pay the freelancer 5 days after you started the tell you your funds aren’t verified and it’s going to take days to verify meanwhile your money is out of your account and in there’s but you can’t pay the freelancer that rushed your job
Very embarrassing and frustrating you look like a dead beat to someone that did a great job for you
Freelancer’s Unacceptable Customer Relations
After previously writing a stinging review of Freelancer, one of their representative contacted me to amend the situation. Their attempts we laughable.
Although I am just working with one Freelancer currently and the amounts are under 300, they will not budge on not accepting 3 forms of my personal ID. With all of the hacks and "personal identity theft" being reported on a daily basis, why would anyone set themselves up for a disaster like this??? Fiverr does not require such absurd confirmations.
After not complying with the absurd demand of personal ID, I asked for the most recent project with the artist's NDA and IP contract to be refunded... since they won't allow me to do business on their site... what did they do? They suspended my account!?!?!? Wow! But that's ok, there's always by next best friend - Fiverr! Already found the same freelancer there!
I informed the Freelancer representative that if they refund ONLY my project 2's NDA and IP contracts that I would amend my Sitejabber review, but they have not replied to my request, but in fact, closed my account! Madness! Why destroy their reputation over $40.00 of contracts that have not had their projects' started???
This is exactly why a customer relations website such as this one, Sitejabber, is an important resource to us all for reporting the egregious actions of a company against their customers.
In short, my update is DO NOT USE Freelancer if you want to protect your personal identification, want to avoid a hellish customer experience, and just live a lesser stressed life.
Dumb operational staff
Freelancers may not even allowed to bring clients from another platform and have client pays inside their freelancer site. The company is running out of client, because they are run by very dumb operational staff. They are asking dear our clients for consultation only for 20 dolar. Which is showing how bad their financial condition is.
